Nonstop

From Catch Up With Summer, 2015.

Nonstop

Seems like summer is always coming
it’ll be here soon
wait just a little more
and
then it was here and
whizzing by like the train we waited for at the grade crossing
waving at the passengers who never waved back
because they were gone before they were here.
Seems like summer was like that train
gone before it was here.

  1. I always felt summers went so swiftly when I was a kid. Now my kids experience summer breaks that are literally twice the length of the breaks we had in Scotland yet it still feels like it whips by. The relativity of time.
